Tasting Notes

This whiskey kicks open the door like a Texan roughneck wearing boots of black molasses and pipe tobacco. Sliding up to the bar, it perches thick and heavy. A coin spins across the wood and buys a whole bottle.

A pour, and a layer of sweet coffee and spice hang in the air.

Patiently, a sip. Barrel char bitter and a worn leather satchel tug on memories of better days. Another drink. A bit more this time. Soft caramel and vanilla peek out from behind the veil.

“She was the best of me…”

Silence falls over the room as it rises and fills a glass for everyone at the bar. Bottle empty, it glides out the door on a trail of mesquite-black and honey-gold.

This is a historic first. It involved Balcones Distilling in Waco, Ironroot Republic in Denison, Andalusia Whiskey Co in Blanco, and Crowded Barrel Whiskey Co in Austin.

Balcones, Andalusia, and Ironroot sent samples for the blend to Austin, TX. More than a dozen blends were created and the final 4 were sent to each of the distilleries for opinion and feedback. A blend was selected and the appropriate barrels were shipped to Austin, TX for blending.

After resting and allowing the whiskeys to “marry” together, 3 different proof versions were created and sent to the distilleries. From there the whiskey was proofed down appropriately over time and then allowed to rest prior to bottling.

This is an exclusive release of the Crowded Barrel Whiskey Co “Alliance Series”. The goal of the Alliance Series is to source and release amazing whiskey from craft distilleries across the United States.

This bottling totaled only 1,000 – 375ml bottles.
